The British Olympic Association say that they have not received any terror threats against Team GB ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The British Olympic Association has insisted that Team GB have not received any threats of terror attacks ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Reports have emerged claiming that Russian authorities are trying to track down alleged female suicide bombers, who are understood to be based near the Black Sea resort.

Despite the concern, the governing body believe that they are not in danger of any terror attacks for the duration of the Games.

According to the Associated Press, Team GB said: "Organisations such as ours receive email correspondence all the time, some of which seems to lack in credibility."

The 17-day Games will get underway in Russia on February 7.
